The purpose of this guide is to act as an adjunct for the medical textbook while you are working a clinical shift. It is designed to help refresh your memory when needed and assist you in clinical care, at the touch of a screen.
Graduating medical school and starting residency is a daunting process. Often times you find yourself unable to recall that important little nugget of information just when you need it. In July 2012, as new emergency medicine residents, we realized that this happened quite a bit. It became clear to us that to help future generations of residents integrate the textbook and patient care, an electronic guide for quick reference was needed. We hope this guide will help you through your years as a resident physician, for those moments when you feel like your memory is failing you or when you have to manage something for the first time on call.
